this one's a roller-coaster of emotions. You go from laughing to crying to laughing again. Patrick's relationship with the kids is amazing and beautifully written, as well as the bits about dealing with grief and loss.

the pace was a little bit slow for me and sometimes parts of Patrick's speeches felt a bit forced and took me out of the book, but other than that, it really is a great, great book. I know I'll be thinking about this story for a long time.
